Description

What is the Discover World Destinations Series?

Given the onset of COVID-19, most of us have had to cancel our vacations in 2020 and until the world is able to find a way to slow down the COVID-19 cases, its highly likely that various states in the US, along with many other countries, will continue to have travel restrictions and quarantine requirements, making it difficult to travel.

Not being able to physically travel to our desired locations does not mean that we cannot still find ways to appreciate and increase our travel knowledge in other ways in the meantime. Starting January 2021, we will be starting once a month Friday evening one-hour chat about travel to destinations around the world. We will invite guest speaker(s) who may be able to share fun, interesting and useful insights about the destination.  We will share insights about local culture, not to miss food to try, off the beaten path places and perhaps even interesting details that only insiders or locals know. Do also share your experience or knowledge about the destination if you have lived or visited there before.

We encourage you to start a travel journal with us, so that when we can travel again safely in the future and you decide to explore one of these destinations, you will already be in the know!

We plan to have our favorite wine or beverage during this fun chat.

First Stop – Singapore

Singapore is a bustling island ­metropolis that is no wider than 40 miles at its widest point but has a population of 5.7 million and is one of the world’s leading economic centers in shipping and banking. Today, Singapore’s resident ethnic makeup predominantly comprises the Chinese, Malay, Indian, Eurasian and Peranakan communities and  has four official languages; English, Tamil, Malay and Mandarin. One of our favorite cities in the world with its lush green spaces, century-old temples, busy hawker centers and multi-cultural heritage, Singapore undoubtedly has many charms.

If your only “visit” to Singapore is through the movie “Crazy Rich Asians” released in 2018, then you definitely need to join this chat to find out how much of the movie is an accurate portrayal of Singapore.  In the meantime, here is a 2018 article by CNN on the “Crazy Asians Travel Guide” for your FYI:

This will be a very “Shiok” (she-oak) (Singlish for “very good”) evening not to be missed!
